BRUSSELS (Reuters) - The European Union executive agreed on Wednesday with the assessment of the bloc’s Brexit negotiator that the latest British offer did “not represent a satisfactory solution”, the bloc’s top budget official, Guenther Oettinger, said.

Oettinger is a member of the bloc’s executive European Commission and spoke after the body was briefed by the EU Brexit negotiator, Michel Barnier, on Brexit.
